Dougie Poynter: I still love Ellie Goulding

Dougie Poynter still loves Ellie Goulding.

The McFly bassist hasn't ruled out a reunion with his ex-girlfriend but admits he found it "hard" because they had to spend so much time apart.

He told The Sun newspaper: "We love each other very much. We are the best of friends. We hung out at Coachella, like all day, with her friends and my friends. It was really, really cool. Everything is totally fine.

"It's just both being all over the place. Like I said, we still get on really well. She's one of the most amazing people I've ever met. But just right now, it's hard. I'm single now."

Meanwhile, the 'Explosions' hitmaker previously described her relationship with Dougie as an "unfinished story".

When asked if they could work things out, she said: "Maybe. I hope so. We have something I know is special and I think other people see it - my friends see it, my family see it...

"But I think some things are just kind of unfinished, an unfinished story. I hope so - he's a real gem and he's doing so well and he's keeping busy, as am I. I hope so, he's a great guy."
